  • Summary
    Aaron is an internationally recognized authority on risk, crisis, and consequence management. Working with clients and partners in 48 US States and Territories and across 10 Countries and Nations, he applies operational experience from a 30-year career in incident and crisis management to deliver clear and practical insights into the value of the hard work of prevention and preparedness over the semi-controlled chaos of responding to disruption and disaster. He speaks to operational and executive audiences worldwide about the challenges of identifying, assessing, and managing risk of all shapes and sizes while preparing to do more than “Survive the Surprise” when those efforts are not enough.

    As a Senior Principal with Dynamis, Inc., a NATO Civil Subject Expert in national training and exercise programs, and the Founder of One Thirty Nine Consulting, Aaron builds and leads teams to explore the challenges of managing risk, crisis, and consequence across the globe. His recent work includes addressing challenges associated with Insider Threat, Workplace Violence, Communicable Disease and Bioterrorism, CBRN Consequence Management, and Business Continuity program development.

    Before becoming frustrated with the status quo of emergency management and disaster response operations and becoming a consultant to drive change, Aaron was the Director of Operations for a commercial ambulance and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) provider in western New York State, leading a distributed team of medical, transportation, and communications professionals providing emergency and non-emergency services across a multi-county region. Aaron was responsible for coordinating and integrating organizational disaster response operations following the 9/11 attacks and serving as a member of the command staff for the Louisiana Bureau of Emergency Medical Services Tactical Operations Center during the 2005 responses to hurricanes Katrina and Rita. He continues to satisfy his passion for prehospital emergency medicine as a volunteer paramedic in Rappahannock County, Virginia.

    Aaron is a National Registry Paramedic and a Master Exercise Practitioner. He received his Masters of Public Administration with a focus in Emergency Management from Jacksonville State University and his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Texas Tech University.
